Is there a knitter in your life with a birthday coming up? Are you getting in some early Christmas shopping for your aunt or sister who knits? If you're not a crafter yourself, or if the knitter you know seems to have everything they need already, finding the right gift for your well-deserving knitter can be a challenge! Thankfully, we're here to help you ace this gift-giving test! Welcome to the ultimate guide to gifts for knitters! Here are our top picks for knitter-friendly gifts:
Our Yarn of the Month Subscription Box is the ultimate gift for knitters. Every month they'll receive a ball of yarn, a corresponding pattern, and a mystery gift! They'll also gain exclusive access to a huge community of knitters and crocheters that share daily inspiration, projects, and ideas. Each month's yarn is beautiful, high-quality, and made of a unique fiber. Your knitting loved one is sure to be inspired and absolutely thrilled by their monthly box! It's truly The Gift That Keeps On Giving.
This one might seem obvious - but that's why it so often gets overlooked! Never assume that the knitters in your life have enough yarn. For a committed knitter, there is no such thing as too much yarn!
One of the great things about shopping with Darn Good Yarn is that you have opportunities to find types of yarn that even the most experienced knitter you know has never tried before! For instance, we have eco-friendly yarns made out of banana fibers, cotton t-shirt yarn, and many yarns that are made from recycled sari silk!
Our newest product is the Yarn Advent Calendar. It's filled with 12 Days of easy knit, crochet and DIY crafts to do with you and your family! It's the perfect activity to fill your house with fun and easy decorations everyone will love. If you're looking for a great gift for the crafters in your life, give the gift of yarn! A new surprise every day will inspire and excite any yarn lover.
This joyous kit comes with 12 balls of cotton yarn & 6 different easy to make patterns. Each ball of yarn has roughly 80 yards.
If the knitter in your life doesn't have a yarn bowl, this is definitely a gift they'll appreciate! Yarn bowls hold your cakes and balls of yarn while you knit to keep them from rolling away, help the yarn to unwind neatly while you work and serve as a handy storage place for knitting needles. These bowls make a big difference in the ease and convenience of working on a knitting project.

Hey everyone, it's Nicole! I'm the owner here at DarnGoodYarn.com and I want to talk to you in this video about yarn bowls! And we have so many different kinds of yarn bowls. I kind of went a little bit crazy ordering, but most of you know that we have our basic wooden yarn bowl. It's beautiful, it's nice and heavy. It's made from sheesham wood and sometimes- if you're not familiar with yarn bowls- we get a question on how to actually use it- like what's the purpose. And you know, if you have- if you're like me and you don't get to knit or crochet all that often and enjoy your fiber arts, like sometimes it's just nice to have your yarn out in like view like okay- I still see you over there yarn like I'm gonna get to you one of these days when I'm not chasing a toddler around like in my case! So you keep your yarn out. It's a really nice way to display it and when you're using it, you just simply take your yarn and you wrap it through this little swirl here and then you can stick it on the floor or on the table and then you just work your project. Some little tips and tricks that I like is if you're putting it on a floor and it's also wood as well-just make sure you put like an anti slip mat between that and it keeps it from just running all over the house. But this is a really great way to preserve any like special twists especially for handmade and handcrafted yarns. it keeps the twist from getting really unwieldy versus just like letting it roll around on the floor and collecting dust bunnies which in my case they're everywhere. And then this becomes a swiffer instead of a ball of yarn. It happens! Hey I'm just being real! In some of our, in some of our other yarn bowls. you'll notice that there's a little hole on the side of the bowl and that is for- it’s kind of nice. You know here's your yarn bowl and then when you're not working on your project you can stick the project in the bowl itself and then you can stick the needles through the hole going from either this way like that and rest them, which is nice because then everything stays together you can work and do it the other way as well. But since I have a project on here it's gonna stick out and be really awkward and not give the look that I'm going for. So with our ceramic yarn bowls too- the nice thing is they tend to be a little bit larger in most cases so you can get a larger ball of yarn in there- usually right around 250-300 grams. And then this is also- I'm in love with these- these are our limited edition painted yarn bowls- and these are you can see the size difference. They're substantially larger- they're like double the size of our standard wooden yarn bowl and they are just beautiful. So I hope that answers any of your questions and you can sort of see the size of what this all looks like and introduce you a little bit more to our world of Darn Good Yarn bowls. Alright, if you have any questions reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach us on social media using the #DarnGoodYarn. I will talk to you all later! Bye!
Is a yarn bowl something that your knitter friend or relatives already owns? If they, like many of us fiber artists, tend to work on more than one project at a time, multiple yarn bowls are a great thing to have! Check our Darn Good Yarn's selection of yarn bowls to find the perfect one for the knitter on your mind.
One of the most exciting things that a knitter can receive is a brand new pattern. This is an even better gift when it comes with the yarn needed to complete the pattern! Knitting Patterns and Kits provide your gift recipients with new opportunities to do what they love and make handmade items that will remind them of you!
Many of Darn Good Yarn's knitting patterns are available for free, or for low prices! All of our kits include both a pattern along with the corresponding yarn in the color of your choosing!
Holidays are here which means you will be traveling around to visit family, friends, having longer commutes, or possibly just need better hiding places for your projects. The Yarn Storage Bag Bundle is the perfect companion for a knitter. It can easily hide your projects while making it so easy to pick up and work while on the go! We love the bundles because they come with special surprises inside that will spark inspiration to start making!
